Arogya World wins the prestigious UN award for initiative against NCD

BANGALORE, India, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Arogya World is thrilled to be selected as a recipient of the 2022 UN Interagency Task Force and the WHO Special Programme on Primary Health Care Award. The award recognized Arogya World for its work in scaling up community-based delivery models to strengthen prevention and control of diabetes at the population level, across 19 states in India.

Expressing her views, Dr Nalini Saligram, Founder & CEO, Arogya World, said, “This is a proud moment for us, as Arogya World is the only non-profit working in India to receive this prestigious award. This is global recognition for the work that my team has been doing for more than a decade, working tirelessly on the prevention of NCDs at the population level in India. We thank Dr Venkat Narayan from Emory University for nominating us, and thank all our partners and supporters for helping us improve the health of millions of Indians throughout our vast country. This award spurs us on to do more, with a greater sense of responsibility, and continue to implement well-designed programs that deliver measurable public health impact.” 

The 2022 Awards were presented to winners during the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting in New York, at the UN Interagency Task Force for the Prevention and Control on Noncommunicable Diseases Friends of the Task Force side event on 21 September 2022. All the recipients were recognized for their achievements during 2021 on multisectoral action in the prevention and control of NCDs, mental health and the wider NCD-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Arogya World takes this opportunity to congratulate the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, India and The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) who were one of the winners in the government category for the India Hypertension Control Initiative.

NCDs, which include heart disease, diabetes, cancer, chronic lung diseases, and also mental health, cause 74% of deaths globally and are increasingly recognised as one of the leading health and development challenges of the century. WHO and compelling clinical studies have shown that 80% of heart disease, 80% of diabetes and 40% of cancers can be prevented with 3 lifestyle changes – eat right, increase physical activity, and avoid tobacco. This is what can help prevent diabetes in the first place and prevent it from worsening, from leading to heart disease, kidney disease or stroke or blindness, and ultimately leading to very poor quality of life. But overworked healthcare providers and staff in crowded under-resourced hospitals and clinics simply don’t have the time to give this important lifestyle advice. This is where non profits like Arogya World come in – to give the critical “Lifestyle Change Prescription” to everyone – patients, caregivers and healthy young people alike, and help them all progress on their individual health journeys. Non profits like Arogya World are an essential part of the extended healthcare ecosystem, as they provide preventive healthcare and bring about behaviour change in the community setting, which means doctors and healthcare providers can be spared to take care of the patients who need urgent medical care.

Arogya World follows a doorstep health model, and takes prevention to people where they live, learn and work. Having reached more than 7.5 million people across rural and urban areas, with 1 million among them being at lower socio-economic levels, living on <$5.50 a day, Arogya World drives its purpose through 4 key programs – Healthy Schools, Healthy Workplaces, mDiabetes and MyThali. A fifth program Arogya City is to start this year. The COVID era has highlighted that this prevention mission is now more urgent and important than ever before because people with underlying NCDs have worse negative health outcomes from COVID infection. 

Arogya World’s goal is to further scale its science-based programs, working collaboratively with multiple partners and government, and continue to contribute towards India meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

IIIT Hyderabad and Silicon Labs Launch Campus-wide Wi-SUN Network for Smart City Applications

New Smart City Living Lab initiative to enable research and innovation in this emerging IOT communication standard

HYDERABAD, India, Oct. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — IIITH Smart City Living Lab in partnership with Silicon Labs, a leader in secure, intelligent wireless technology, today launched a campus-wide Wi-SUN network to enable research and solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities. Wi-SUN is an open-standard protocol enabling interoperable solutions through open source software with multi-layer security. Wi-SUN will enable utilities, municipalities, and other enterprises to deploy long-range, low-power wireless mesh networks connecting thousands of IoT nodes.

IIITH Smart City Living Lab is setup as an initiative of MEITY (Ministry of Electronics & IT) , National Cities Mission, and Gov of Telangana, with knowledge support from EBTC (European Business Technology Council). Silicon Labs, Intel, and Saint Gobain are the other three founding corporate partners. Professor Ramesh Loganathan said, “The Smart City Living Lab, a year old now,  is already a testbed for various start-ups and research. IIITH’s campus consists of sensor networks monitoring different verticals such as water, energy, air pollution, solar generation, etc. as well as a strong standards based data network”.

The Wi-SUN network will add to the existing modes of sensor communications including Wi-Fi and LORA. Wi-SUN needs no towers or expensive communications infrastructure, and allows sensors to connect easily to the cloud. The  project at IIITH will convert all 100 streetlights on campus to Wi-SUN smart streetlights, to build a dense and steady network to allow other sensors such as energy meters, indoor deployments etc., anywhere on campus to utilize these lights as router nodes to send sensor data. 

“Industry-academia partnerships, like the Smart City Living Lab are critical to the growth of the IoT in India,” said Ross Sabolcik, SVP of Industrial and Commercial at Silicon Labs. “Together, we can solve some of the country’s most complex challenges and improve quality of life for all with wireless connectivity. This Wi-SUN network launch is an important milestone that will be the foundation for future smart city applications.”

This project is the foundation for future research study into the Wi-SUN network and will also include challenges for start-ups to build solutions for smart cities using the Wi-SUN network to help take smart city innovations to cost-effective deployment.
